It's no secret that here at Freckles we love organization!
Our office supplies were designed to be colorful little inspirations for your work space - inspirations to help you keep that space clean and organized and give those colorful little pretties a nice place to rest.
At the top of my personal favorites list for organizational tools are planners.
Not just any planner through - I prefer the kind that basically becomes glued to my side, kind like a second boyfriend.
A second boyfriend that gets carted around everywhere, holds all my secrets and details for every project and keeps my schedule in check so that there's no over-scheduling with my first boyfriend... or work or family or friends.
My planner is the first thing I look at in the morning and the last thing I look at at night before settling down and turning work mode off.
This year, my planner is even more special to me because it was designed by a fellow small business owner. Shop small y'all!
There are SO many amazing little details packed inside this GORGEOUS second boyfriend... I'm excited to share some of my favorites with y'all!
I'll be honest that I've been pretty stuck in my ways planner-wise the past two years but after checking out the Refresh planner, I was hooked! I couldn't imagine a better planner for me, my schedule and my lifestyle... and then there it was.
I'm excited to show you some of my favorite details... like an adorable pink plus pattern that pairs so perfectly with the bright and bold that is Freckles Creative Studio.
But first... Y'all know we are BIG on the full experience. Receiving my planner in the mail was the very best experience!! A crisp white box with stickers telling me it was a "happy mail" day, crinkle paper, tissue paper, more stickers and a hand written note. I was ELATED with this planner before even getting into the planner itself!
Just inside the front cover are NINE pages of goal planning. NINE!! Talk about getting real with your goals.
I spent a good amount of time on 2016 goal planning and it has paid off bigger than I could have imagined! And that was only on ONE page. I can't imagine what kind of year is in store for 2017 with goal planning laid out by quarter and broken down into big goals and "baby goals".
Probably my very favorite aspect is that each week is laid out on one spread to get the full week at a glance. This is PERFECT for those of us who don't have a lot of "appointments" but have a mile long to-do list to break down into manageable daily tasks.
Plus each spread has a notes and "happy things" area, which I plan to use to document "wins" for each week. Celebrating the little things is how we stay on track to those goals!
Another favorite perk is that each month STARTS with a blank lined sheet of paper... perfect for carrying those goals over by month and for writing down the most important things to accomplish.
I have already entered into that weird period at the end of the year where I have two planners going, one ending in December and the next starting in January. Each time I have to crack open my Refresh planner I am excited to end this year on a high note and start the next even higher.
If you're on the hunt for a new planner for 2017 or know of someone who is, PLEASE check out the Refresh planner for yourself HERE. You will not be disappointed.
PS brides... J.Lynn Designery also has a WEDDING PLANNING PLANNER. Yeah, you heard me right! At the top of my post-engagement gift list (one of these days.) will definitely be the WedLove planner... Thank heavens for someone like Jenna who has just thought of it all!!
I am proud to be a Plan-bassador for J.Lynn Designery. This is a partially sponsored post in that I was provided a 2017 planner at a discount in exchange for my opinions. All thoughts written above are my own and I genuinely have a big huge love for Jenna and the Refresh planner. Happy planning!
